I received this arc for an honest review. I'm trying to gather my thoughts & emotions as I write this because it was an emotional read. Right off the bat I knew it was gonna get to me at the dedication. The author dedicated this book to "those who struggle with darkness". This book has some serious subject matter alcoholism, depression & cutting. This story is about Kyra trying to fake her way to happiness to battle the darkness within. She moves to the island of Canaan where her mother grew up in hopes to get some family insight & hopefully help her resolve her demons. Along the way she becomes really good friends with Stevie who is also battling demons of her own. They slowly confide in each other & one part I really liked was when Kyra told Stevie "We're not broken"...... And than she finished it off with "because we deserve the happiness we fake". I thought that was profound because I've often used the term fake it til you make it. This book really showed how people struggling with things in there lives cope, many cope with fake happiness or anger or fighting. No way is wrong but it is just a band aid. I felt like all the characters in this book were really strong & brave. I also felt that Meg really did a wonderful job hitting on these deep topics & making you connect with the characters. It also made me think about how I fake through some struggles in my life & how people I know also fake it. We all at some point paste a smile on our face when really that's the last thing we want to do. In a way this book was therapeutic & I'll definitely be recommending this book to friends.

I added this book to my cart because it's a plot I've never read about before. I really enjoyed the setting of a small town/island and the main characters are likable (though the antagonist aka her grandmother didn't really make sense) . The author did not shy away from graphic scenes, that's something to be aware of if you're sensitive to self harm or discussions of depression or alcoholism. I do wish some plot points were explored a little more, but overall it's an enjoyable book.

This book is written well. The characters are flawed but endearingly human and loveable. I found myself laughing and sobbing and having to blow my nose. Those are the signs of a good book in my opinion. I will definitely be checking out other books by this author.

Sad story yet, with light at end of the tunnel. Behaviors could be disturbing to some readers but this is the reality of some people's worlds...so not judging. Is a rather dark story of survival.

This was a great book. I couldn't put it down. It is very eye opening on the topics of depression, cutting and alcoholism. Wish we would have gotten more from Hale and learned more about him, but Kyra was a great stand alone character.

WOW!! What can I say, Meg Collett hit another home run with this books. Kyra is a young lady who is dealing with depression and moves away from her aunt and uncle who raised her when she buys her old family home. The house needs a lot of work and we meet Hale, such a cheery fella, who is hired to fix up the house. We also meet the cast of characters in her neighborhood from Stevie who becomes a great friend (so hope she gets her own story) to the neighborhood busy bodies to her estranged family. The author weaves a story of a young lady dealing with an illness while trying not to show it to the world and find out about her mom from items found in the house. While doing this she makes wonderful friends and starts to fall in love. I laughed and cried while reading this and fell in love with her characters. You'll be missing a great story if you don't read it and be prepared not to be able to put it down once you start

A fairly fast read with characters that have depth to them. The book itself could have been written at a higher reading level, but this book is definitely about decent people who march to the tune of different drummers and have to survive life.

Kyra Aberdeen is hoping that returning home to a place she's never been will bring her the peace she's never had. Although she appears to the world as cheerful and upbeat, delivering peppy Youtube videos and social media posts, it's all just an act. For as long as she can remember, Kyra has been fighting a darkness inside of herself, one that she can only find relief from in unhealthy ways. In an effort to stop her destructive behavior, she's decided that smiling big and putting on a happy front will be her way of dealing with things. Until she goes home to Canaan Island, GA, and meets Hale Cooper. Hale hates fakers, and has no problem pushing every one of Kyra's buttons until she's willing to get real. FAKERS was an interesting read for me. I think that Meg Collett did a good job of addressing the need for openness and discussion about hot button issues like depression and addiction. She managed to make her characters funny and engaging, even while they were less than perfect. Stevie is absolutely the best friend that anyone would want to have, and I found myself laughing out loud at her antics. I had a bit of a hard time getting a bead on Hale, but he stood by Kyra like a champ, and I really liked him a lot by the end of the book. Ultimately, I did enjoy FAKERS, and would recommend it, especially to fans of New Adult reads, and give it 3+ stars.
